In slack, community comes together
By WILLY COOK
It might be slack season, but valley residents who have put away their summer toys and raked their yards are still getting out to participate in a variety of events. Clockwise from top: The Wood River Gun Club south of Bellevue hosted a turkey shoot Sunday in which everyone left as a winner. These shoots will run every Sunday through the middle of January. The cost for a punch card is $30, which entitles one to shoot five games consisting of five rounds fired per game. The winner either wins a turkey, pork loin, ham, bacon, ribs or beef rib-eye steaks. If one does not win a game, fear not—he or she is rewarded with a sympathy turkey. Here, three generations of Kolmans display their bounty. From left to right, Eric shows off his pork loin, young Isaac exhibits his turkey, and Robert his pork butt. Up north, Santa Paws showed up at the Sun Valley Animal Center south of Ketchum Saturday and for a fee posed with family pets. At Hailey Elementary School, Friday was America Recycles Day. The school won last year’s state recycling competition and the $1,000 first prize. Here, Sydney Alarcon, left, and Caroline Seaward drop their recycling wares in the associated bins and sign a pledge to be a lifelong recycler. In Ketchum on Monday evening, dozens gathered at Silvercreek Realty Group to support local theater actor and director Keith Moore, shown at the event with his wife, Patsy Wygle. The Art Cures benefit was held to help Moore with medical bills in his battle against cancer.
